Welcome along Thruxton1 I'm sure the nineT will more than fill the void left by an outgoing ThruxtonHi, I am a current BMW 1000rr rider. I saw the NineT at the Cycle World show in Novi, Mi. I really liked it. It has a compact look and is very nicely finished. It starts out looking like a custom and should be easily personalized. I look forward to following it's introduction. I think it would make a great replacement for my Triumph Thruxton sometime in the future.
